Author of more than 25 plays, numerous short stories, and works of non-fiction, Dr. Aviva Ravel's works concentrates heavily on Jewish life throughout the world and, more specifically, in Montreal. Her works have been featured on the CBC, Kol Isreal, and at the Saidye Bronfman Centre. Two of her plays were also adapted into film. Born in Montreal, Dr. Ravel holds a Ph.D in Canadian Theatre from McGill University, an M.A from the Université de Montréal, and a B.A from Concordia University. She taught English, drama, and Canadian literature at all three of these universities, including the Royal Military College. Dr. Ravel's work as an educator was not reserved only to college and university; she also taught regularly as an elementary teacher in Montreal as well as on a kibbutz in Israel. Since 1984 Aviva Ravel has been Artistic Director of Cameo Productions. She is also founder and director of the popular Performance Playreading Ensemble of the Cote St. Luc Library that has presented over 150 plays, both classical and modern, in the theatre auditorium. Dr. Ravel is the recipient of many awards including the Women Write for Theatre Award, J.I.
